Evidence of a genuine relationship statement.

Hi guys,

Right now I'm trying to write my statement of the history of me and hubby's relationship. We've been together for almost 7 years (married almost 4) and at the moment it's turning into a novel. How LONG are they expecting this thing to be? I'm typing it out in Word just to get it down, and I'm already onto the second page, lol. I have specific dates and everything... and providing all the info they need thus far. Are there any examples around to show how exactly it should be done?

Also, I'm thinking about submitting a typed copy on ordinary paper (as opposed to a proper form). Please tell me that they will accept that. I really, really do not want to hand write this bad-boy out by hand! LOL.

Thanks.

Well I submitted mine on a normal piece of paper and signed it, that's what a statement is as far as I know.
I tend to think that the statement is more of a test to see how functional you actually are in english and would submit it in your own hand, as long as it's legible.

I did mine in point form with dates and a paragraph or two describing specifics. It's hard to get the balance right as there is really no right or wrong. Took me a while until I was truly satisfied.

My Fiance's English isn't that great and her statement didn't have enough meat to it, if you will, however the dates and descriptions were pretty much the same.

We printed, signed and dated it, respectively.

My hubby and I have been married for 7 years so I'm right there with you. We both typed ours out and while his was 2 pages, mine was 7 or 8! We just had our signatures notarized and that seemed to work out fine. What country are you applying from?

The application will be submitted outside of Australia. He's still living in America, I moved back to Australia last August (to get better paying employment and setting up our living arrangements.

I typed mine and it only took me 2 pages. That's excluding all the pictures I included as well as the exchange of emails, online banking transactions, etc. I summarized as much as I could and I only included pertinent information which might help.

De facto visas approved! Good luck on your application.

Hi Guys,
I am writing my statement now with my partner, just wondering. Do I need to get a witness, like a JP to sign the statement?

Cheers

Hi tokai86,

no you don't have to get it witnessed...nevertheless some people do it anyways to give it more meaning, make it more official ...so it's up to you if you get it witnessed or not!

cheers

Yes you need it signed by JP. Or any person who authorized to do it.
You also need to get your other stat Decs from friends and family get witnessed by someone. You can use form 888.
What country are you from? Coz here in OZ, a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, bank manager, etc., are allowed to witness a document. You just have to explain it to them. Coz most if them didn't know about it.
But I suggest go to a JP/Solicitor and have it witness. No need to explain it to them. They already knew bout it.
Some solicitor are for free. I had my stat Dec signed by a JP/ Solicitor for free.

Cheers,
IMkddj
